Another +1 for Firefox.  The last time I tested, it used a lot less 
resources than Chromium. 

In general, shouldn't we plan for a survey or re-evaluation of our choice 
of applications at the beginning of each testing cycle?  Usually most apps 
don't change much relative to each other, but it can be good to know for 
sure.  Or should we let it be and expect that people will bring attention 
to the changes?
